Collins Airhihenbuwa: The Journey for Health Equity
2018 Kreuter Katz Lecture on Health Equity
Collins Airhihenbuwa, a Next Generation Program faculty member, was the keynote speaker for the School of Public Health’s 2018 Kreuter Katz Lecture, offering a talk titled “We are All Others: Crossroads and the Journey for Health Equity.” Dr. Airhihenbuwa joined Georgia State University this fall to lead the interdisciplinary team known as the Global Research Against Non-communicable Disease (GRAND) Initiative at the School.
GRAND will address the growing global threat of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, obesity, drug and alcohol abuse, and mental illness. NCDs, also referred to as chronic diseases, are the leading cause of mortality around the globe, according to the World Health Organization.
